Suggestions for open air Bluetooth phone use?

I love to have the top down, but I'm wondering if anyone uses earpieces or other to still have BT phone capability? I've got to imagine using an in-car microphone system is useless due to noise. Thanks, JH

Not much you can do, I have an old jawbone ear piece that works pretty well if I put the Windows up while driving, I don't have the wind blocker. The mic on the column is useless with the top down

I have a bluetooth system for which I insalled the mic on the dome light cluster. With the top down, the only way for it to be useful is with the windows up and the windscreen in the up position, works fine. Other than that, an earpiece would be your best bet I'd say.

My solution was a set of LG Tone+ Bluetooth headphones. I've had conversations up to 60mph with the windows down, no wind deflector. May work at even higher speeds, but just haven't tried. They also make for a perfect music listening solution if you use your phone since the stereo can't really be heard clearly at road speeds either.

I'm just geeky enough to have contemplated wiring a bluetooth transmitter into the factory head so that I can have the convenience of tuning local radio with the 'phones as well.
